A COMPANY’S itinerary for their team-building day away from the office has all the components of a normal, tedious working day.
Harwood Marketing promised their staff a day out of the office full of ‘fun activities’, but suspicions were raised after they received an invitation with a worryingly strict schedule on it.
Sales assistant Emma Bradford said: “If I have to be forced into participating in this shit I expect team games or raft building. Stuff that I hate and will moan about but is a different kind of misery from being in the office.
“But this itinerary including activities like ‘mind mapping’ and ‘workshopping’ which is the kind of nonsense I spend my usual working day trying to avoid by smoking by the bins.
“I was planning on using the day to gossip about whether Jemma the secretary is shagging Chris in IT and overloading on free refreshments and now I have to mind map. I mean, what do they think they pay me for?”
Company director Denys Finch Hatton, said: “We’ve spent a lot of money on hiring the Holiday Inn down the road so it would be a huge shame if any of them actually enjoyed themselves.”
